Welcome Meeting 2022

The Welcome Meeting will take place in person (it will not be streamed) the 29th September 2022,  at 10.00 h at at the Sala Jane Addams of the Faculty of Philosophy of the Universitat de Barcelona.

The guest lecturer Ramon Ferrer-i-Cancho is a language scientist and professor at the Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya, where he teaches computer science. He is interested in human language, animal communication and other biological systems. The keystone of his research are statistical patterns, specially the so-called “linguistic laws”. As a linguist working from computer science he will give us a different perspective of what language can be and how it can be studied.

After that, we have an orientation session with MA students.
